At ITN, Your Modern-Day Education Is Globally Accredited, Recognized, and Respected (And Yes, It Matters)

It’s easy for schools that aren’t fully licensed, approved, or accredited to say those things don’t matter but the truth is, in this modern-day world, they do!  

With more agencies looking to regulate and license coaching, it’s critical that our school is approved by these programs so that our students and graduates can practice legally and each individual can stand out as a credible nutrition and health coach.

The power of our accreditations and partnerships reflects and affirms that our school provides a high-level, modern education for our students. 

We are honored to achieve these accreditations and partnerships on a global level.
